We are very honoured to be part of this event tonight at Sans Soucie/zero.O.lab Studios. As some of you may know, our head designer, Lexi Soukoreff, is a graduate and advocate for this program, as it provided her with all her technical skills, as well as a basis in art & textile history, portfolio development and practical business skills for textile artists. The Capilano University Textile Arts Department has been cancelled, along with many other programs. The 1st year students of the program will be allowed to finish their 2nd year in order to complete their diploma.
Tonight, a showcase of work by many Capilano University Textile Arts Alumni will be shown and auctioned off in support of creating a private scholarship for the graduating class of 2014. This group is slated to be the last graduating class of the program.
This is an open invitation to our friends, clients and anyone who supports the arts to come by an enjoy the work that comes from such a precious program.
